I am assuming the Golden Nugget is responsible for this one. Unless someone can tell me otherwise, they get the blame.
The old lettering on side of this building and Nevada sign was pretty cool and was a nice piece of "vintage" Las Vegas. The location is at the top of the GN parking garage. So the GN tears down the sign and paints over the wall. Really? Was this necessary? I am curious how long the lettering on the side of the building and the sign had been there? I am guessing at least since the 1950's or 1960's? Was it really an eyesore? Did guests of the GN complain about it? Come on now. Ridiculous...
Here's a photo I recently took.
Here's what it used to look like:
With a little Photoshop help it made a nice "vintage" Las Vegas style photo:
